Getting Zambia to Work examines some critical issues in Zambia's recent history, including the country's unhealthy dependency on 'foreign largess' and their implications for national self-assertion, social self-reliance and sustainable development. The book suggests practical and simple ways in which Zambia could lift itself out of its current underdevelopment trap. Though most of the proposed solutions do t require huge investments in new money, they do however require improved transparency and accountability in the use of existing resources.

A Rhodes Scholar, he also holds a Master of Laws degree from King's College, London and a Master of Arts degree in Philosophy, Politics and Ecomics from Oxford University.
